Spanish term or phrase:ejercicio / ejecución (this context)
This is from some Mexican divorce documents. The entire sentence is below. I am just wondering if someone could help me with the translation of the bit between the ** (sin perder...su ejecución). I'm just a bit stuck on how to translate the nouns "ejercicio" and "ejecución" in this context.
Los jefes de oficina consular podrán delegar en funcionarios subalternos el ejercicio de una o varias de las facultades señaladas en el presente artículo, **sin perder por ello su ejercicio ni eximirse de la responsibilidad por su ejecución.**
I am Spanish, not Mexican, but would say that "ejercicio" means to exercise determined functions given by a superior. "Ejecución" would be "execution" of a specific task. That is what I feel it would be, but probably Mexican natives will give a better...

Explanation: The directors of the consular office may assign one or more of the functions described in this article to assistants, but this does not mean that such functions are not to be carried out, or that ultimate responsibility for their undertaking lies elsewhere.
Sometimes ya just gotta untangle the whole thing and reconstruct for meaning.
